Withdrawn from sale,Sparkins 888

Firstly I need to apoligise to the buyer who was going to buy my T8,I can`t say sorry enough mate, but when it came down to it I just couldn`t let it go.I had the rear wheel re-powdercoated this week after the Pads dropped out at Snetterton and scuffed all the wheel,then when I was putting the rear wheel back in last night, the missus said "don`t sell it,you`ll never forgive yourself,tax it in the morning,go for a ride and if you still want to sell it after that, fine"
But she knew that if I rode it I couldn`t sell it and I can`t,so his one going to be kicking around for a while

The other thing was,I went to the chiros last night(I`ve been going twice a week for over a month now)and I had a massive release of tension in my neck which led to the best nights sleep I`ve had in ages,and after a hour or twos riding today I suffered no ill effects at all
